6 Summer Shoes to Soothe a Man’s Fashionable Soul


A man’s summer shoes should be cool, comfortable, stylish, easy to care for and capable of taking him from the office to the boardwalk without any stops in between. Yeah, this may sound like a lot to ask from a single pair of shoes—but we’ve found you six that are positively up for the task.

OluKai ‘Nohea’ Mesh

OluKai 'Nohea' Mesh

These Olukai Mesh slip ons are lightweight, breathable and very comfortable. They feature a contoured footbed made with ‘bare-feet’ friendly microfiber suede. These have recently been updated with a rubber cupsole to make them more durable for year round conditions. In other words, whatever you can dish out, these shoes were made to handle.

SeaVees Huarache Sneakers


We like the huarache influence of these SeaVees sneakers. These are 100 percent leather for durability and classic appearance, but also about 50 percent vented to ensure your feet stay cool and dry in the summer heat.

Clarks 'Outfish Spray' Leather Slip-OnNewbuck upper leather and a bullet-proof rubber sole headline these Outfish Spray slip-ons by Clarks. These feature Clarks legendary comfort, craftsmanship and class, with just a touch of urban renegade to add a little mystery.

Swims Lace Loafers

These are exactly what you’d expect from a clan of Norwegian rain shoe designers—durable, flexible and 100 percent rubber. Except there is one catch… these are vented, so while they may be incredibly cool on a hot summer day, they are not exactly waterproof on a rainy one. Just remember your umbrella and you’ll be fine.
